You Never get a Second Chance of Making a First Impression…!

The weather is getting cooler and the days are getting shorter which makes it a great time to update your outdoor lighting.

You never get a second chance of making a first impression, and you want your guests to feel welcome from the moment they pull up to your home. You also want them to enter safely!

With so many recent trends in outdoor lighting, the decision-making on what to purchase, can be overwhelming.  At this year’s June Dallas Market, Rick Seidman, President & CEO of Quoizel spoke to Samantha Hart, Group Editor from Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, to discuss top trends in today’s outdoor lighting. We live in this Amazon-era of high technology, and I think when people get to their home they want it simple, they want it clean and yet contemporized. As the outdoor living space becomes an extension of interior, that whole look and trend is moving outside” says Rick.

Internship Continues to Shine!

The Quoizel internship program began in 2011 and continues to grow each year, welcoming new and returning interns who are gaining great work experience. This program has opened doors to many past students including Carter Gerard & Eric Lee, who both saw their own designs come to life in a handful of new introductions back in January.

This year, Xiaowen Shao, Hima Tadimeti and Aditi Vyas will be working with Quoizel’s Peter Cox until the end of August doing research, analyzing sales and trends and working on new designs.

Dallas Market was Filled with Celebrations & Introductions!

What a week it was! From the New York-style lunch and market sing-along for Ira Phillips’ 90th birthday celebration, to the 150+ items introduced, the week was both successful and memorable!

To hear hundreds of customers, colleagues, family and friends singing “Happy Birthday” was such an unforgetable experience for Ira and everyone in attendance. Click here in case you missed it.

According to enLIGHTenment’s June 2017 Lightovation editorial coverage, trends in lighting include: gold is the new neutral, lighting as art, jewelry for the home, LED technology and incorporation of natural elements. According to Quoizel’s own Rick Seidman, “nothing lights up better than mother nature.”
